Mayan Warrior

Medium: watercolor on hotpress Arches watercolor paper.

The original painting is 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 inches. I use primarily Schmincke watercolors and Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes in sizes 000 through 2. The paint is applied in small strokes, similar to a stippling technique. The paint is first applied in pale, transparent layers and is gradually built-up to achieve the desired saturation.
